KEIKI COBRA

ROADSTER

Keiki is the Hawaiian word for “child.”

 

SEMA Cares Charity, Austin Hatcher Foundation has partnered with the Kawasaki Family to build a Custom Roadster that will be unveiled at SEMA 2021.

 

This custom Roadster (replica of the legendary 427 Cobra) is a part of the Austin Hatcher Foundation’s Industrial Arts STEM Program and Youth Engagement.  The Industrial Arts - STEM Therapy program serves a multipurpose function: first, to introduce and educate a STEM-based trade to children of all ages, and second, to treat and improve coordination deficits, behavioral, memory loss, learning and many other deficits as results of childhood cancer for both the affected child and their siblings. 

 

The Foundation’s vision through its services is to enhance therapeutic interventions through youth engagement with fun and exciting real-world activities that transfer into functional skill sets and build a strong interest and alliance with the automotive industry.

 

The Foundation drew its styling cues from the legendary 427 Cobra with modern technology, parts and materials to improve performance and comfort.
